I am new to this site but have read a lot of the stories and feel inspired to share my own. This takes place at my former place of work, a residential home for elderly people, so we dealt with death regularly and many of my coworkers had claimed to see or hear things in this place.
I was working the late shift and on a unit that led into another unit by a long corridor. My coworker and I were folding laundry at the end of an uneventful shift and chatting about general things just around the corner at the point where the two corridors meet. Suddenly we heard what can only be described as someone in high heels walking down the corridor.
We exchanged puzzled looks as no one we could think of would be wearing that kind of footwear in this environment. The employees all wore flat shoes/trainers and residents mostly wore slippers/flat shoes. Just as the footsteps came to the point where the wearer should have come into view, they stopped. We exchanged another look and both walked to look at who was there.
All we found was an empty corridor! It also felt rather cold. Very unusual as with the heating on constantly it's usually like a sauna! We both laughed nervously and after a very fast room check... Together!... And finding all our residents asleep, We decided we had folded enough laundry and headed for the nightshift takeover!
We did question other people on shift at the time but couldn't find anyone, worker or resident, who even owned heeled shoes let alone was wandering the corridors in them! We felt quite unnerved as neither of us had experienced anything like this before.
There have been a few more occurrences in this location that I will write at a later date.
These places usually have a high mortality rate so yes I believe there will be residual energy around these places
Thanks for your comments
